A man has just separated from his wife. He feels helpless and begins therapy. In the therapist’s waiting room, he meets Adriana, with whom he becomes sexually entangled. Adriana begins revealing the traumas of her birth and a whole mess of perverse confessions unfurls that confuse him even further. It is a novel about the fracturing of the self, masculinity and its demands, fatherhood and disappointment, but above all, it is a book about the desire to break oneself apart in order to start all over again.
